Our Dalmatians BARF Diet
1). 2 chicken wings or 5 chicken necks or 1 chicken back (given
as is raw)
2.)1/2 cup of fruit (raw) either put through food processor or
Apples, peaches, melons, bananas whatever is in season. Fruit should
be preferably over ripe. Some times I throw in a pack of frozen
blueberries or mango as long as there is no sugar added. ( I no
longer add any dairy)
I hide Emma's pills in this after first opening a capsule Milk Thistle
and stirring it into the food. Milk Thistle is a valuable tool used to
detoxify the liver.
This is what breakfast looks like ( no cottage cheese anymore )
We give each dog one cup (sometimes a little more) of the following
mixture and 1/2 cup of warm water We also give 1 Vitamin E capsule
400 units to each dog, they love it and eat it like candy, as well as 1
vitamin B Complex 50 ( I open the capsule and stir in the contents
into the mixture) Em's pills and KBr are added to her bowl.
2lbs of pureed vegetables (including the juice)*
1 lb of ground chicken wings or backs (raw, skin fat and bone
3 eggs
3 tablespoons of Flax Seed Oil
3 teaspoons of kelp powder
3-4 teaspoon of alfalfa powder
 2 teaspoons of Barley Grass powder
A Sample of the Veggies I use
Butternut Squash, Collard Greens,
I homogenize
the vegetables in
a juicer .
I grind, 1 lb chicken backs, necks or wings and
sometimes a little beef heart and add it to the
vegetable mixture along with Barley Grass Powder,
Alfalfa Powder, Kelp Powder, Eggs and Flaxseed oil. Each dog gets a
little over a cup of the mixture along with a small amount of cooked
white rice, sometimes some canned salmon or fresh fish. I mix 1/2
cup of warm water into the mixture.
This is what dinner looks like
This makes about 6 cups of food. Vegetables must be broken down
by either a food processor or a juicer otherwise the dog cannot
process them and thus they are usless. The aim is to make the
veggies look as they would inside the stomach of a wild dogs prey.
*We use a combination of the following raw vegetables, Collard
Greens, Turnip Greens, Mustard Greens, green and yellow zucchini,
sweet potato , winter squash ( I cook this in the microwave) carrots,
parsely, dandelion greens.
Leafy greens are especially valuable in an epileptic dogs diet ( or
non-epi's) as they contain many nutrients, including the most
important Omega 3 essential fatty acids most of the vitamin needs
and various anti-aging factors including anti-oxidants.
Leafy greens contain most of the vitamin needs for a dog, the only
one they lack is Vitamin B12 which can be rectified by using eggs
(raw and if possible free range) Leafy greens also contain Biotin and
Folacin in abundance, also large quantities of vitmins C,A,E and K and
carotenoids (anti-oxidents).
Amino Acids:
Chris Alderson of Epil-K9 writes this:
Deficiencies of amino acids can cause a wide variety of diseases and
conditions including some forms of epilepsy.
Some of the amino acids (there are about 26 amino acids) are ONLY
available from animal protein sources, and since many commercial
foods use a higher proportion of grain/cereal or vegetable proteins,
these diets are usually deficient in animal protein and the related
amino acids. Even commercial foods with quality sources of animal
proteins can be deficient in amino acids, since heat and processing
alter the bioavailability of the aminos.
One of the single best advantages of raw feeding is the high amino
acid content of raw foods, particular the "live" animal protein
sources that are the basis of the raw diet.
Taurine is one of the amino acids that is only available from
ANIMAL protein sources. In the section on Taurine, ( the first
edition of Holistic Guide for a Healthy Dog) the Wendy Volhard
book includes this:
"anti-convulsant, successfully used in treating epilepsy", and
"controls brain and nervous system neurons".
In the section on Epilepsy, the Volhard book includes amino acid
deficiencies as a cause. The author also recommends natural diet
and amino acids in the treatment plan for canine epilepsy. The
Strombeck book on homemade diet mentions that the "body uses
amino acids to make chemicals that serve as regulators of
neurologic function.."
In an email conversation with Dr Ian Billighurst about a BARF diet
for an epileptic dog he recommends a diet high in taurine ( raw
chicken) and vitamin E.
If you are considering using the diet for a Dalmatian make sure you
use lower purine yielding foods. I make a ratio of 2-1 veggies to
meat to keep the protein lower. Please visit these sites for complete
information on feeding Dals a BARF diet. These are also applicable
for any dog.
Three very satisfied customers, Tessa , Rosie and Emma
We started feeding BARF July 1st 2000. Since then Emma has
only had 8 seizures before that she was seizing every week. See
her diary Emma's Page for details on her struggle with the
monster epilepsy
